What good’s the cloud without storage? Enterprises need places to stow their data before it’s analyzed, ingested, exported, or otherwise transformed, and fortunately, Google has their back. Today at its annual Cloud Next conference in San Francisco, the company announced new storage tools, pricing, and products for customers of all sizes.
First on the agenda was a new archive class designed for long-term data retention that eliminates the need for a separate retrieval process, Google says, while providing “immediate” and low-latency access to content. Both access and management are performed via a familiar set of Google Cloud Storage APIs through which objects can be tiered down to save on costs, and data is redundantly stored geo-redundantly across multi-regional availability zones.
Pricing will start at $0.0012
